Emergency Preparedness Considerations for Individuals
Who Are Hard of Hearing

Emergency preparedness is the responsibility of ALL individuals. Many understand they need to make a plan, build a kit, and stay informed, but what does that mean for individuals who are hard of hearing? 

Specific considerations will be discussed of what should be included in a plan and in an emergency go kit for home, work, and the community.
